Chelsea goes harder in their pursuit for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.
The Dutch central midfielder has failed to hit the expected heights since joining the Catalan giants from Ajax.
The 24-year-old is a regular starter, but his performances are often middling, which is leading the club to consider cashing in on him.
According to El Nacional in Spain, Chelsea have put in a bid of £33 million, while Barcelona want £50 million.
The report states that a compromise figure of £41 million may be enough to take De Jong to Stamford Bridge.
